Hloubetin Community Centre, Prague District 14

Site

The community centre and library in Hloubetin is positioned at the edge of the historic gardens of a castle and St. Georges church. The castle is surrounded by a containing wall and there is a gap in the wall which coincides with the plot of the community centre.

Concept

This structure represents the idea of the GATE, encapsulating the spirit of community and integration. It speaks to the ‘within and without’ nature of the historic wall by positively embodying the concept of connection: between society, culture and garden. The emphasis on permeability in this design means street and garden are given to each other. Likewise, the building itself opens in various ways onto the garden – allowing for a variety of architectural formulations for public events.
